I've seen the A2 connected to the same model TV that I have (JVC HD-61FN97) and an XA2 running on a different TV from mine, and I've run mine through the XBOX 360 as well though the difference there could be due to 1080i component/upscaling vs. 1080p through DVI->HDMI from the HTPC.
Have you tried running HD DVD through an HTPC in your setup?
